Home is where the Heart Is

Happy Friday All. Hope you have a wonderful day.
 Looks like it is going to be another hot day today so I am going to set the fan on a high setting and get my feet up to watch the golf on television all day. I sometimes wish I wasn't such a big sports fan as I do spend a lot of hours watching different events. I did used to play a lot of sport but old age took over so I do the next best thing I guess.:) I can do a bit of crafting at the same time though.

At Try it on Tuesday the theme this week is 'Home is Where the Heart is'.

I made this hanging. First of all I found the word Home online and made a larger version to to print onto card. Then I cut it out and stuck it onto another piece of card. Good old distressed inks were used to cover it all and spritzed with water to add effect. I used a die for the hearts and stuck those on and a few jewels. All that remained to do was as the peel-off gold edging, the raffia to hang it up and the flowers.

Thought I had better add my tag that I made for Tag Tuesday where the theme this week is The Roaring Twenties. I have only recently been accepted there and I am enjoying seeing all the wonders that people make each week.

A simple deco shape and a stamped image and peel-offs.

Thank you for dropping by

Love Chrissie xx

  9. I do like this "Home" hanging and reading about how you made it. I like your red Art Nouveau tag too, very effective.

  10. Hi there, Chrissie, dear...I just love your "Home" hanging and your tag. Both are very pretty, yet distinctly individual. The hanging on the softer side, like a cool breeze, and the tag very clean cut and edgy with the bright red, black, and gold accents. I really like them.

    I hope you enjoyed your sports day.

    Sending you love and best wishes,
